I Heard My Laugh on Letterman.Posted: November 26, 2009
We attended the taping of the Letterman show that aired last night, with Natalie Portman as the main guest. Watching the show, I heard my distinctive laugh at one point during the monologue. It wasn’t on a punchline, but rather on one of those moments when Dave lets a little anxiety show. “Here’s something I found interesting…[grin/grimace] and I hope you’ll agree.” When I heard my laugh, I remembered, “Yes, only a handful of us found that plea amusing enough to make us laugh out loud…and I did seem to be the loudest.” Anyway, now my laugh is making its way around the cosmos. Perhaps an intelligent life form in some other galaxy will hear it someday, and chortle in sympathetic response.
